Massage Matters Research Team



Massage research is key to moving our profession and your practice forward. Research consistently demonstrates the efficacy of massage and its broad ability to address clients’ needs. Quality studies help educate the public and other healthcare professionals about the therapeutic benefits of massage. The result is a synergy wherein clients request massage and other professionals refer their patients to you, thus growing your practice.

With you as a team member, the Massage Therapy Foundation can continue to fund research that enables you to provide evidence-based care and advance the profession.

Join the Massage Matters Research Team by donating a modest amount to the Massage Therapy Foundation on a monthly basis. Make a personal investment in the future of your profession and your practice by making massage research matter.

“I have been a monthly donor since 2001. It is so easy to do…every month a small amount was automatically deducted from my checking account to help me meet my annual pledge to support the Foundation’s mission. As my practice matured, I was gradually able to increase my monthly donation that now equals the value of one massage per month. I am a proud member of the Massage Matters Research Team and encourage everybody to join us!” – John Balletto, BSc, LMT, CKTP
